Bernd Talasch doesn’t remember being hatched in a research laboratory in Omaha in the late 1950s so maybe that never happened....

Righteous Kill Premire London

NOTE : If the images of this image are ever blank, chances are the links are broken somewhere, but in all likelihood the awesomeness of DeNiro, Pacino and Cent are STILL HERE IN THE FACEBOOK ALBUM LINK

Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro, two very fine actors. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, a very fine rapper. Jon Avnet (who?), a producer of some surprising movies. And Donny Wahlberg, who had better things to do than show up. AND Yellow Cap Guy. AND the usual slew of celebrities I’ve never heard of, and with a new rule in play : if I don’t know who they are, I’m just going to guess, based on whatever criteria I deem necessary.

Righteous Kill" I’ll admit I hadn’t heard of the film until I did a check of upcoming premieres in London and this one kind of leapt out since it starred 50 Cent and Donnie Wahlberg… uh, I mean Al Pacino and Robert De Niro

The Firing Squad. My Pentax K10D says : “bah” (but does so quietly)

Producer Jon Avnet (“Who?”), Actually, I’ve since learned his Production credits include Risky Business (1983), all three of the Mighty Ducks movies (!!), the movie version of ‘Inspector Gadget’ (starring the hated Matthew Broderick) and the film ‘Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow’, which I also hated. Yay, Jon Avnet!

Based on the strength of his past Productions, I’d expect Jon Avnet’s ‘Righteous Kill’ to be better than being crushed at the premiere of that same movie. Marginally, at least.

Al Pacino! Many of us theorise that as soon as he signs onto a role in any movie, that character’s dialogue is amended to include at least one five-minute screaming rant in full ‘Al Pacino Mode’. Woo! I call this photo You Can Call Me Al and you can verify it is not as blurry as the facebook link above!

Curtis “Fiddy Cent” Jackson. And, yes, this being England some clever people in the crowd decided to call him “Fifty Pence”. Oh, very well… LOL!

Al Pacino dances to the voices in his head. Although, being Al Pacino’s voices, they’re probably very angry and shouting loudly.

Ah, Robert De Niro. A great actor once, I’d say. But since about the ealy 90s he’s basically decided to ‘play against type’ and did so for Analyse This/That, Meet the Parents/Fockers, Shark Tale and a buddy movie with Eddie Murphy. Could some body tell the man it’s not ‘Playing Against Type’ if they’re the only roles he’s played in over a decade?

De Niro, Pacino and 50 Cent. Did you know that between them, they have 13 Billboard Music Awards, 7 Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Awards, and Thirteen Grammy Award nominations?

A celebrity! (But who….? A Spice Girl, perhaps?)

No matter how wrong I’m likely to be, I don’t even want to know if this isn’t Kiefer Sutherland….

I’m going with ‘The young priest apprentice from Luc Besson’s ‘The Fifth Element’

No idea at all. Um…. can I buy a vowel??

Oh, look. It’s Robert De Niro, depressed because he doesn’t have as many Academy Award nominations as Al Pacino, as many Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Awards as 50 Cent, or the ability to just stay home and relax on the couch like Donnie Wahlberg or John Leguizamo who are also in the film but didn’t go to the premiere.

It’s hard being Robert De Niro.

Oh, and I got to meet Yellow Cap Guy!!

Next up, if I can recover, is the movie ‘Tropic Thunder’ this Tuesday….

Other Premieres:
The X-Files : I Want to Believe
The Dark Knight
